The First International „Schilcherlandopen“
& Styrian Nationals 2017

Preface (Vorwort)
Honored guests!
Dear friends of chess!

Deutschlandsberg is the location of the International Schicherland chess open for the first time. We are very proud to welcome the elite of chess in our town and we are looking forward to sharing the fascination of the royal game with you.
We are expecting hundreds of participants of several nations at this open in which the styrian nationals are involved. I really hope that there will be enough time for you to explore our beautiful town with a walk through the historical part of the city through the tournaments.  Deutschlandsberg is not only an economic centre it is also the “shopping mall” of the district.
I would highly recommend you to plan a visit at one of the properties of our region and common meeting areas called Buschenschenken where you can find homemade specialities and several variations of self pressed wine. I would highly recommend you to try the Schilcher which is a variety of wine you will only find in our country.
It would be remiss not to thank the chess community Schilcherland for the outstanding organisation and implementation of this great event and I would like to thank Wolfgang Heinisch and Wolfgang Gosch especially as well as all supporters who made an event like this possible.
I wish all participants good luck and all guests exciting hours and a great stay in our beautiful city.
Mayor of the city,
Mag. Josef Wallner
